3  They did exist  But historians question that 5,000 of Rome’s best soldiers were defeated by rebellious British tribes

4  Did they march north only to be annihilated by hostile tribes?  There is little evidence that this was the case, apart from:  The Ninth Legion’s name disappears from the Roman military rolls  The memorial to a soldier of the Ninth killed ‘in a great battle’ though this could have been the earlier battle with Boudicca  The Roman Eagle found in Silchester Hampshire sometime after the disappearance of the Ninth Legion

5  1866 reverend J.G. Joyce found what he believed to be the lost battle standard of the Ninth Legion  But this was a case of misinterpretation  The eagle was the inspiration for Rosemary is what the movie is based on  However the eagle was a civilian symbol, most likely it stood upon a globe

6  In AD 122 Hadrian visited Britain and realized that the only way to ensure stability was to build a wall
